Virginia grew up in Orkney, using the breath-taking scenery to fuel her imagination and the writing fire within her. Her favourite genres to write are fantasy and historical fiction, sometimes mixing the two together, such as her newly-published book Caledon.
She enjoys swashbuckling stories (her favourite book is The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas and she's still waiting for a screen adaption that lives up to the book!), and is a fervent believer in happy endings.
When she's not writing, Virginia is usually to be found teaching music. She believes wholeheartedly in the power of music, especially as a tool of inspiration.
In 2019, she graduated with an MLitt in "History of the Highlands and Islands", fueling her creative writing in her chosen of genre. She also helps out with the John o' Groats Book Festival, which is celebrating its 3rd year in April 2020.
She now lives in Caithness, soaking in inspiration from the rugged cliffs and miles of sandy beaches.
She loves cheese, music and films, but hates mushrooms.
